Photo blog about the Philippines is site of the week

During the week, I’ve decided to dive into learning about digital cameras. You can just be overwhelmed at what’s on the Internet! It’s so full of very useful and interesting sites that touches the topic of photography. Seeing that I would have to put some laid out plan on how I need to go about my process of learning more about photography, I’ve decided to take a lighter activity this week by checking out blog sites featuring photos of the Philippines.

This particular photo blog caught my attention. The site named “My Sarisari Store” features photos of the Philippines. When I visited it, I was amazed at the beautiful shots of underwater fauna made by the photographer. Another thing that’s amazing is that the photo shots are featured on the photo blog of Belgian Sidney Snoeck who decided to move to the Philippines in 2002.

Here’s a sample photo of his guest photographer Stephan Jaeggi who created the underwater photo shots. Visit Sidney’s photo blog to take a look at more stunning photos.

Photography as a hobby

I’ve decided to start learning and collecting information about photography today. Since one of my goals this year is to buy myself a DSLR camera I thought that while saving money for the digital camera, I’d start blogging and posting about the topic. It’s a way for me to put up an online archive that I can go refer to again while learning.

To start off things, I’ve made some changes to my blog to include a separate category on photography. I’m currently looking for some photo gallery plugins for WordPress. I’ll post more about this later.

If you’re into photography as a hobby or even as a profession, please post a comment or contact me. Maybe we can learn photography together online and help each other out.
